MacDermid Alpha to Feature Latest Low Temperature Solutions at SMTA Guadalajara and SMTA Empire Expos

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global supplier of integrated solutions from our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor divisions, will present two papers on its latest low temperature solutions at upcoming SMTA Expos, the first at SMTA Guadalajara which will be held at the Expo Guadalajara from September 21 – 22, and the second at the SMTA Empire in New York on September 27. 

Francisco Gallegos, Customer Technical Support Engineer at MacDermid Alpha will present the paper, ‘Low Temperature Soldering: Traditional Sn-Bi based alloys and latest developments in high reliability alloys for SMT and PTH applications’ at 10.30am CT on Wednesday 21st September at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo. The paper will discuss MacDermid Alpha’s latest low temperature innovation, ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 solder paste. Designed to mitigate warpage induced defects in temperature sensitive chip-scale packages, the solder paste enables peak reflow of 175°C to minimize post reflow defects such as Non-Wet-Open (NWO) and Head-in-Pillow (HiP). 

Lily Zeiler, District Sales Manager for Northeast US at MacDermid Alpha will present, ‘Low Temperature Soldering: Why LTS is Now a Potential and Viable Option for Many Applications’ at 1:00pm EST on Tuesday 27th September at the SMTA Empire Expo. The paper will discuss how by enabling lower peak reflow temperatures, low temperature solders offer manufacturers considerable process, reliability, and sustainability benefits for a broad range of applications. 

In addition to its low temperature technologies, including ALPHA OM-565 HRL3, MacDermid Alpha will also promote its range of ALPHA HiTech adhesives, underfills, edgebonds and encapsulants at both expos. The ALPHA HiTech range of polymer materials are designed to provide enhanced protection for assembled chip components for a broad range of applications including automotive, camera module and mobile. Also featured will be MacDermid Alpha’s Reclaim and Recycling Program, which provides a safe and efficient service enabling customers to meet their environmental and legislative requirements, and at the same time maximize the return on their waste streams.

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
